Conservative Rep. Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.) is calling for the arrests of young immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally as children, often called “Dreamers,” who attend President Trump’s first State of the Union address Tuesday night.

Dozens of Democrats and one centrist GOP lawmaker are bringing such immigrants as their guests to the State of the Union amid the debate in Congress over whether they should be allowed to stay in the country.

Gosar said he asked the Capitol Police and Attorney General Jeff Sessions to consider checking the identifications of everyone attending the State of the Union and arrest any immigrants they find in the country illegally.

Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) is not endorsing Gosar’s call to arrest and deport the Dreamers in attendance, making it unlikely such a suggestion would go into effect.
